Why Change Your Wife?


We recently watched 1920's Why Change Your Wife?
Why Change Your Wife stars Gloria Swanson as Beth Gordon.
Beth is a prim old fashioned sort of wife who nags her husband Robert Gordon (
Thomas Meighan) about various different things.
Robert buys Beth a fabulous negligee in the hopes of making her into more of what he is interested in- and she refuses to wear it.
Robert then turns his affections towards the flapperish delights of Sally Clark (Bebe Daniels).
But, oh... how Beth gets her revenge!
The costumes are wonderful in this movie- especially the aforementioned negligee- which I would love to find a version of!
